West Seattle and Duwamish Valley Travel Options

Updated: April 9, 2021

This site is a growing hub of information on different ways to travel to, from, and throughout the West Seattle peninsula. Walking, rolling, biking, scooting, riding transit or rideshare - or changing your trip to stay local or travel at off-peak times - are all ways people are getting around and helping minimize impacts to communities located along major detour routes. While the West Seattle High-Rise Bridge remains closed, everyone needs to do their part to reduce their travel impacts. We're here to help connect you with the resources and information you need to do so.
